    I have been working at Burton Snowboards full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing staff who love to snowboard and help others find their passion for boarding, get to know Burton riders, close working relationships with higher-ups, literally getting paid to live in a winter playground. 401K, health care & what now offered. Loads of opportunity to move up and expand in the company. CAN NOT GO WRONG WITH THE COMPANY

    Cons

    Summer has to come around and ruin the fun

    I have been working at Burton Snowboards full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working with people who are passionate about the outdoors and have active lifestyles. Great sense of culture and community. Company has a clear direction and clear statement of goals beyond financial. Sustainability is important to the organization/owners. Burlington is a great little city/town. Montreal 1.5 drive, Boston 3.5 hr drive, NYC 1 hr flight.

    Cons

    Some departments still recovering from former toxic leaders that ingrained their mentality on those that worked for them. This has improved dramatically in the last 3 years, though. Burlington is great, but sometimes feels like a small town.
